Rockfax Description
The steep slab is especially sketchy for the short. Side-runners drop the grade a notch or two. Loss of a hold may have made this a touch harder than it used to be. © Rockfax

βeta: 5" climber, could do the moves to get up on toprope, so doable for shorter climber, but need more attempts to put it together. Not sure I would ever attempt as lead!

βeta: Found this hard, two poor crimps, high rockover onto small foothold and a slap for the top. More like E3 6a to me (5'6" by the way).
